Sustainable development in all areas of water resources management, water supply, waste water treatment and solid waste management is of great importance for present-day and succeeding generations. Engineers and natural scientists in water resources and environmental management are qualified to search for responses to worldwide problems of increasing water scarcity, flood risks and environmental pollution. Graduates work together with colleagues in several special fields. The job is multidisciplinary, interesting and worldwide needed.

WATENV is a research oriented Master of Science Programme, which provides international students the opportunity to qualify for demading positions in water resources and environmental management. Therefore the education is interdisciplinary with optional specialization in Water Resources Management or Sanitary Engineering.

Several institutes of the highly reputable and well equipped Leibniz Universität Hannover (Germany) are involved in the WATENV courses. They offer outstanding general conditions for students and researchers.

In the first semester students obtain knowledge of basics in natural sciences, environmental hydraulics, hydrology and water resources management. Afterwards one of the two special fields, Water Resources Management or Sanitary Engineering, has to be elected for the second and third semester. These scientific courses are accompanied by courses, which aim at the development and improvement of soft skills required for successful scientific work. In the fourth semester students complete the master thesis under supervision.
